The New York City Urban Field Station brings art and science together with their Artists in Residence program to foster new ideas and programs about urban conservation, environmental stewardship, land management, and community resilience.

By engaging artists in thinking about social-ecological systems and natural resource management, the program applies creative approaches to make complex systems and concepts more accessible. This exhibition highlights projects explored in a variety of media by UFS resident artists Katie Holten, Matthew Jensen, Mary Mattingly, Lize Mogel, Heidi Neilson, and Adam Stoltman. The NYC UFS is a partnership between The USDA Forest Service, NYC Parks, and the Natural Areas Conservancy.

Raccoons in Central Park have tested positive for canine distemper virus. Although the virus cannot be transmitted to humans, it may be transmitted to dogs. Keep your pets safe in the park.

Please avoid wildlife and make sure your pets have up-to-date distemper and rabies vaccines. Keep your pet on a leash, especially during dawn and dusk.

Please call 311 or notify an on-site Parks employee if you see a sick or injured animal.

If you are bitten, wash the wound with soap and water immediately. Call your doctor to see if you need tetanus or rabies shots, and call 311 to report the bite.

The Health Department will continue to monitor this condition.
